    Dream Consultant Lead at TechShop

    Washington, DC

I am an adventurer at heart. My strong curiosity about products fuels my desire to design them. I love toys, electronics, equipment, and how they are designed! I have been described as inventive, because I am always looking for the smarter way to do things. Whether it is improving my workspace, problem solving, or a new product design, I like to make life easier. I enjoy both collaborating with a team and focusing on my own, either way I like to keep things fun, productive, and always moving forward.
